leaders have said our economy is poised for progress in 2013, and we've seen signs of this progress over the last several weeks. home prices continue to climb. car sales are at a five-year high. manufacturing has been strong and we have created more than six million jobs in the last 35 months. we've also seen the effects that our political dysfunction -- the drawn-out process for resolving the fiscal cliff. the threat of massive automatic cuts have already started to affect business decisions. we've been reminded while it's critical for us to cut wasteful spending, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy, and national security will cost us jobs. it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. the good news is this doesn't have to happen. for all the drama and disagreements we've had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been able to come together and cut the deficit by more than $2.5 tr

and lots of attention. one thing that wasn't really in there in any specificity was the economy. it's a way forward on how she thinks the next right steps or what he thinks the next right steps are on the economy. there's some sort of gray area here in where he wants to head. >> now, before we get to chuck hagel, the sort of train wreck that happened yesterday, ruth marcus, the white house is coming out or hhs is coming out with new rules to liberalize the guidelines so that religious institutions are somewhat insulated, somewhat more insulateded. first of all, they're going to more broadly define religious institutions. also, give a separate provider so that the religious institutions themselves don't have to provide birth control to their employees. >> well, first of all, you said white house, and even though hhs issues these guidelines, one can be fairly sure that the white house was closely following this because this has been a difficult issue for them. what they did today was really an elaboration of a plan that they had proposed earlier. the theory, as i understand it, is that it won

on this. it's the families. it's the earned citizenship, and as you pointed out, about the economy, 30% of u.s. nobel prize winners were foreign born. they invented things. they make stuff. they invent things, and that's how we produce jobs in this country. there is no reason why we would have no cap for sports stars and we love our sports stars in minnesota, and many of them come from other countries, so we have no cap on that, but we have fairly severe caps on scientists, engineers, and inventors, and that's what we're trying to change. >> senator, before i let you go, i'm heading from here to the state department where i'm going to be interviewing hillary clinton, and there is so much talk among democrats whom i have been seeing the last couple of days about hillary clinton in 2016. only today a man in nigeria, a woman in germany at a town hall meeting, a globle town hall live asked her about her intentions. is she -- if she chooses to run, is she the prohibitive frontrunner, or is joe biden as the vice president, the presumptive heir to president obama in the democratic party? >> w

of the shadows, that is over $1 trillion that's going to be put into our economy over ten years. that's going help to provide for education, for social security, for all the things that we worry about right now. who is the work force? where is the work force? there's a work force right here that we can help engage, put them on a pathway to legalized, earned immigration status that they'll have to earn. they'll have to pay back, you know, penalties, taxes, learn english, get in the back of the line and work their way through it, and i think that the public overwhelmingly supports that notion. >> do you have any concerns about the way the obama team inside the white house, the cabinet is shaping up so far in the top positions we've seen white men. we've seen a lack of diversity, critics say. there is that iconic picture, we're told, valerie jarrett is separate there behind dan pfiffer, but not really visible. she is a powerful voice. there's no denying that. the most powerful voice probably in the white house. what about lisa jackson that's left, vpa. you're leaving labor. when are we going to

it abundantly clear, the world economy would be recovering faster if barriers to womens participation were torn down. when it comes to afghanistan, i worry constantly what happens there, for everyone, but in particular women and girls. we've made a lot of advancements. a far greater number of girls are going to school, women are running businesses, practicing their professions, but there is a very large group of women who mostly are in the countryside or in settings where the theories and practices of including women are not accepted. and i worry particularly about extremist groups, fanatics, who shoot, you know, teenaged girls because they want to go to school. that is just beyond my comprehension, but i know it happens, because i deal with it every day. we have a long way to go, and it's not only in afghanistan. in many parts of the world, the depravation women face, the discrimination, the abuse, rape is a tool of war, sexual violence as a means of keeping women in their place, we have a lot of work to do, and i'm determined to continue that when i leave. >> and up next, more from hillary cl

in a secure economy, i think you immediate to look no further than the inconvenience that people felt last night. we rolled out an energy proposal this morning that we've been working on for well over a year, and the basic premise is energy is good. pretty simple. manager is good. it's necessary. it defines who we are as a nation. what i am working towards is a proposal that gets under the circumstances to a policy that is affordable, it's abundant, it's clean, it's diverse, and it's secure. if we can work towards all those things, we actually get to a better climate, a better environment. just a place where we are stronger as a nation, and where we're cleaner environmentally as a nation. >> you are talking about drilling. when the president and certainly the incoming secretary of state who has been a leader on climate change is talking about doing something about greenhouse gases, haven't the storms, superstorm sandy, irene last year, haven't all of these recent storms and the fluctuations in temperature taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to de
